YOU ARE ME - I AM YOU
Huemans who have the same Mother are siblings.
You and I, gentle Reader, are sister and brother siblings because we have one ancestral Mother whose name was "Lucy," the Mother - anthropologically speaking - of all huemanity. So, as the Dakota, Lakota, Nakota Native American Indigenous 'Indians' say, "Mitakuye Oyasin" - 'We are all related!'
DNA research supports all of this scientifically (Ref. to SLC24A5 - the 'one race gene') without credible challenge, so why are so many hueman beings engaged in suppressing/oppressing/repressing other hueman beings who are only superficially different from them in color and perhaps culture? (We all bleed red) ANSWER: gross, on-purpose-miseducation-by-omission!
In other words, is it safe to say that because individuals weren't taught - at any level - about their own true identity/ancestry/descent, they are doomed to live out their lives maltreating people who are physically related to them but raised and conditioned by different cultures and who might wear skins of observable melanin?
What is the definition of insanity? It's the inability or unwillingness to recognize or acknowledge reality. (Also known as 'cognitive dissonance') Insanity reigns! Thus it should be a serious concern about all those folk - worldwide - who can't handle the truth - whatever color they may be.
A symptom of that insanity - the stubborn refusal of countries' 'education' systems to teach the truth about the Black African heritage/ancestry/descent of all huemans and the deleterious effects of that studied, powerful, purposeful omission - has compelled me to take up 'verbal arms' to ensure that my siblings are continuously informed about and warned of the damaging-to-individuals theft of the knowledge of huemans beings' identity.
How cruel is it to continue to allow such heinous lying-by-omission to warp the thinking of millions of multi-hued students causing such dysfuntional 'achilles-heel' thinking and behavior in so many huemans when it comes to their interaction with others who are different from them in culture and color.
How utterly hypocritical, disingenuous and counterproductive is it for the political, religious, educational and corporate institutional 'movers and shakers' to continue to ignore, suppress or avoid the reality of such an egregiously-grave theft as they prate about 'building a progressive society,' acting as though it's 'business as usual - it's not so important - hardly deserves mentioning at every opportunity. It'll eventually go away without the direct involvement of every single individual in every society.'
How indescribably ludicrous are those 'liberal' pretenders to speak of 'including' their versions of 'Black' history in their 'white-western-oriented' history, especially during that gratuitously-conferred 'Black' History Month! That's so like having a child tell its parents, "I'm gonna' include you!"
As with any aberrational thinking, such institutional, pandemic racism/colorism urgently requires detection and intervention: one can't change such ill health without first determining the levels of the infection within the individual and this can't be done by merely passing legislation against colorist behavior and then just sitting back and wishing the problem away.
One of the tools, necessary for involving individuals who - would like to and - deserve knowing how damaged they've been by being - unknown to themselves - maleducated about their own ancestry/descent/identity - is the Racism/Colorism Quotient Test Program, of The Institute for "Interracial" Harmony, Inc, - Motto: Prejudice Is Learned - It Can Be Unlearned: Many Colors - One Race," which includes the www.racismtest.org used along with Ethnotherapy, for dysfunctional response to differences in color and culture (until the respondents can THINK STRAIGHT), and as the first step in raising the consciousness of the individual, in a non-threatening arena.
My sisters and brothers, it is way past time to purposefully end the 'Family Dysfunction' in this racist/colorist world. We must determinedly put an end to allowing greedy racist/colorist war dawgs to miseducate our progeny to make it easier to send them off to wars and invasions against their very own siblings!
I am you - you are me.
